Knee Pain Treatments
The doctor is usually able to rule out the knee problem by checking out the symptoms a patient is experiencing by doing a physical examination. Although in some occasional cases, the doctors might suggest a scan or tests to get a confirmed diagnosis and also to look out for a more specialized treatment for the patient. The course of the treatment depends exactly upon the underlying cause of your knee pain. If a person is waiting for a week to see if the knee pain subsides on its own – but all in vain, then they might need a proper treatment from an orthopedic. The treatments for knee pain include helping the foot problems or making the hips stronger if the knee pain is mild and is only due to some minor muscular injury. 
The doctors usually recommend one of these following treatments for treating knee pain:
1Medications and pain killers
If a person is suffering from severe pain, then the doctor might prescribe stronger medications such as codeine as it is more potent than the other standard painkillers. The doctors will only prescribe codeine for a shorter duration as it has significantly more side effects than the others. In addition, the doctors tackle the knee pain with the combination of other treatments too along with the use of medications to subside the chronic pain. The strong painkillers help in relieving the pain and to also treat the actual cause of the knee pains such as gout, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis.
